Support » Fixing WordPress » work computer not displaying styles after page update

  • If I view a wordpress web page on my work computer (I work at a large hospital)the site looks fine. If I log into admin and update anything (plugin or a page) and then try to view the site, it will be all discombobulated. It seems to take out the css style sheet. This happens with any wordpress site and with any theme. If i try to clear the cache, view in a different browser, or reboot it does not fix the problem. some computers fix themselves over time. I can go to a different computer and the site will display fine as long as I don’t log into admin and try to update anything. The hospital will not help me or give support. Has anyone experienced this or know what is going on.

  • Does the hospital not have an IT department? This seems to be more along the lines of infrastructure / server configurations rather than website setup. It’s almost like there are specific permissions not being set (write/edit) on certain core files.

    I would turn on wp_debug and see what those results yield once you login to wordpress. That will give you an indication if something is wrong. Also checking the server logs will hint towards a possible issue – but my money is on server configuration / permissions.

    My bet is that your network is caching stuff, using something like a squid reverse proxy server. While you’re working on the site, ask the IT guys if that site can be excluded from the cache.

    Thanks for the replies. There is an IT department but they will not support my person website issues. I figured it was a server or security issue. Did not know if there was a way to change anything on the local computer sided of things. If i go from my site back to admin the dashboard side views just fine. debug showed this:with an argument that is deprecated since version 2.0.0! Usage of user levels is deprecated. Use capabilities instead. in /home/xxx/wp-includes/functions.php

    What you see in debug is irrelevant. If this is a work-related web site, then don’t take no for an answer from your IT department. If it’s personal, then don’t work on it at work. 🙂
